Fab Romano reporting that we're after Andreas Pereira. No where near good enough for me. We really are skint aren't we : (.


1.) 14 Aug 2021 11:22:19
To be honest, I've not seen him play. which I suppose says a lot really.
Right age but if he replaces Iwobi, then I don't care how good he is, he can't be any worse.


2.) 14 Aug 2021 13:44:25
Said to be on a loan with option to buy, I don’t mind that less risk initially.


3.) 14 Aug 2021 17:02:30
Loan to buys did us well under Moyes when we had no money. So I don’t mind taking a player on a test drive for a season.

Townsend and Gray for £1-2 million, the way both played yesterday could prove to be the deal of the century, because their cheap don’t mean their not any good, we have had our share of expensive flops in the past.


6.) 15 Aug 2021 18:30:12
When you think Arsenal paid over £70 mill for Pepe, who was pretty awful on Friday. You can’t help think we’ve played a blinder there.


7.) 15 Aug 2021 20:16:16
The issue with Pereira isn’t that he’s cheap, it’s that he’s crap.


 

 

11 Aug 2021 03:31:42
Small has left and is apparently joining Villa. Can't really blame him tbh as He and his family are villa fans.

they have moved way ahead of us now with their signings imo so it is what it is.


1.) 11 Aug 2021 08:39:20
How have they moved way ahead?

I don’t agree with that - if they want our third choice left back then so be it - we have x2 decent left backs at club.

We also have a top keeper, quality defensive midfielder, world class left winger and x2 youn forwards who scored over 40 goals between them last season

If we get a right back and a playmaker (or get James playing) we will have quality all over the park

Come on have some faith

Pickford
Gidfrey
Digne
Richarlison
Allan
Decore
DCL
Kean
Mina

This is the basis of a pretty decent team.


2.) 11 Aug 2021 08:46:15
It will be interesting to see how he behaves in the future if he doesn't get the amount of game time he thinks he deserves.


3.) 11 Aug 2021 09:18:30
It's not just the team that matters Sobs - it is the squad or lack of depth that kills us.


4.) 11 Aug 2021 12:03:39
Sobs the trouble with EFC is on paper they are a good squad, if overpaid. When they come on to a football pitch that's were the trouble starts, not enough of them turn up on any given day and play consistently or give 100%.

I don't hold great expectations this season. But if Rafa can make them give greater effort consistently, it will allay some of my doubts about him.

Let's be honest. Since Moyes left we have had a series of managers who have flattered to deceive. Now we are worse than we were then.

Just to clarify I'm not suggesting we go back to Moyes. But the top 6 have moved on into another stratosphere, and we have been left behind. Yes we have the promise of a new ground and greater revenue. But until we clear dead weight of the books ( that nobody wants to sign) we will have FFP over our shoulders😢.

Joe willock for less than what we have them for Iwobi. Make you wonder what the bloody hell Marcel was playing at.


1.) 08 Aug 2021 21:41:54
To be perfectly honest I think Marcel gets away with a lot, he never seems to get any criticism.

{Ed025's Note - i think he is starting to now chris..


2.) 08 Aug 2021 22:45:25
We need to remember that Moshiri has had advisors that weren’t in tune with the DoF. I wouldn’t be quick to blame Brands knowing this.


3.) 08 Aug 2021 23:05:33
Agree TA - unless we know who was responsible for which transfer it’s going to be hard to criticise Brands.

With the so called advisors Moshiri has been listening to they could easily be responsible for all the rubbish signings or not?

We’ll never know unfortunately.


4.) 08 Aug 2021 23:06:48
Tbf mate considering what Brand’s job is. If he didn’t go ape shiz (and I’m assuming he didn’t as he signed a new contract) . when Mosh’s advisors insisted we bought Iwobi, Klassen, Siggurdson, Delph on big wages/ fees then Brands has a big part to play in the blame.

The 500mill we've spent in the last 5 years has absolutely ruined us. Any kid who plays fifa career mode would’ve done a better job spending 500mill.


5.) 08 Aug 2021 23:37:37
Fat Chris, I have been saying for a while now, Everton have gone backwards, since having first Walsh, and now Brands in.


6.) 09 Aug 2021 00:19:23
Who are the rare gems that Brands has uncovered?
For the past 5/ 6 seasons we’ve bought whoever was available and paid over the odds. Keep hearing about all these scouts at the Euros, and in Tokyo. To what end? So we can sign Townsend on a free? Senseless.


7.) 09 Aug 2021 00:58:28
brands is like walsh before him a total phoney and full of rubbish.


8.) 09 Aug 2021 01:59:36
Brands is a strange 1 as his reputation was exemplary when he came to us. His reputation is starting to wear extremely thin. Make or break this season imo.


9.) 09 Aug 2021 08:02:32
Agreed that brands needs to pull his finger out but part of the problem is the constant change in manager,

We will continue in this cycle while we keep changing out style of play to fit the manager all our signings are reactive without any real plan In place.

Chelsea are a prime example of a club who by players for a system and the manager has to work with what he is given. I know they are on a different level but they have an identity and they stick to it.

Makes life miles easier. Leicester are another club and now Villa are going down the same route but players to fit the club not the manager

We are in danger in my opinion of being left miles behind.


10.) 09 Aug 2021 10:36:07
The problem we have is historically the owner decided to interfere in our transfers we are now not sure who was a Brands transfer and who was brought in by the owner. Just because Brands was at the club it doesn't mean that he actually agreed some of the transfers. What we do know i'd Brands publicly supports all then signings made by the club. What we can see now is the club have started bringing in players that look to be more aligned with what he did at PSV.


11.) 09 Aug 2021 10:41:48
Great post Yorkie.
This continually changing players to suit the new managers style has caused no end of issues.
We need to get back to having an identity as a club and recruit the players to play the style/ system the club want.
The manager should manage these players - obviously should be able to recruit also but the player should be suited to the system so if manager leaves we’re not starting all over again.

Hoping Rafa is the start of us getting an identity back.


12.) 09 Aug 2021 15:46:27
Got to ask yourself. If he was so good. How did we get him before a bigger club did.


13.) 09 Aug 2021 20:30:55
Chelsea don’t really have a set identity.


 

 

03 Aug 2021 01:24:32
A few Portuguese journos reporting that the Nunes deal is all but done.


1.) 03 Aug 2021 09:28:36
Can he play at rightback 😂.


2.) 03 Aug 2021 13:02:13
Honesty mate he looks like he could do a job there 😂. Tbh I’m still hopeful we may get Dumfries. Marcel loves a game of cat and mouse doesn’t he. The fact he hasn’t went elsewhere is positive. Could just be holding out for a deal structure that suits us.


3.) 03 Aug 2021 14:03:19
Sir loin, I’ve just read on the Everton rumours now pages that Dumfries has stated he has a preference to go to Milan. To me that says Everton are not his first choice, unless trying it as a bargaining ploy for more money. If Everton are not his first choice best to forget and look elsewhere.


4.) 03 Aug 2021 14:29:37
Pretty sure that originated from an Italian news outlet Brian. Tbh it’s all speculation at the moment isn’t it. I hope we sign him but if not we better get a shift on with alternatives.


5.) 03 Aug 2021 15:10:35
Let Dumfries go to Milan, we need players with hunger and desire, players who want to play for the club or even want to get themselves noticed not players who just want a paycheque
Sign the youngster Djed Spence to alternate with Coleman and be blooded in.


6.) 03 Aug 2021 15:12:36
To be honest if his preference is to go elsewhere I hope he does. The horrendous ffp problem we find ourselves in has been largely driven by paying people huge amounts to convince them to come. What we end up with is people that are happy on large salaries and not particularly bothered about playing for Everton. I've been criticised on here for calling a lot of our signings mercenaries but also ridiculed (from the same quarter at times) for suggesting a player might leave to play football rather than stay because he's on huge wages - baffles me that it's seen as logical to argue against both those points because surely its one or the other 😂😂😂. In any case, I have confidence in Rafa when it comes to identifying the right characters for the football club and the right fits for how he wants to play. Whilst I accept that moyes signed some poor girl players I don't recall too many that he brought in that didn't play for the badge and I fancy that it will be more of the same from Rafa. The football might not be dazzling next season but I'm more than hopeful of a period of stability, balancing the books and getting us ready to go into the new stadium on a solid footing.


7.) 03 Aug 2021 15:51:45
😂😂👏👏 Whichever Ed added the girl into my "poor players" comment!


 

 

18 Jul 2021 00:13:30
Copacabana restaurant in town posted a pic with Coutinho saying. "We can't wait to welcome you back and start making special memories with you again".

Hmmm.


1.) 18 Jul 2021 08:16:06
Id very suprised if we do get him as he's on an absolute fortune. If he comes does this mean James is definitely off?


2.) 18 Jul 2021 09:55:13
A loan for him would be sensible, nothing to lose.
James looks like he’s been heavily involved in both the friendlies - I’d like to see him stay.


3.) 18 Jul 2021 11:01:52
Me personally I think he will return to the reds. Probably write off Barca’s balance for the original deal. It wouldn’t make sense for us to sign him with his age and injury record in the last few years.

Actually reading that back it sounds like a typical Everton transfer target lol.


4.) 18 Jul 2021 13:07:01
I'm sure I have read somewhere that Barcelona don't owe Liverpool anything on the coutinho transfer fee.

{Ed001's Note - you are correct, Liverpool sold off the balance to get ready cash years ago.}


5.) 18 Jul 2021 16:45:27
Cheers ED01 it was prob you who I read it from 😂😂.

{Ed001's Note - or Ed002, we seem to spend a lot of time pointing this out!}

DCL looked more likely to get a goal than Rondon Today. Still don't understand why we signed him. Was a semi decent player at Newcastle, West Brom but he's 33 . Bizarre signing.


1.) 17 Oct 2021 17:04:59
What’s even more frustrating is Rafa persevering with him.
He’s currently terrible.
What’s the point of putting youngsters on the bench if not willing to give them a try?
This is my biggest bug bear with any manager - why not give youth a go if the senior players aren’t doing it?


2.) 17 Oct 2021 17:49:02
Totally agree Dan. Why is it every manager we have had has players he just won’t drop? Rondon is way past his best, and it has nothing to do with his fitness. He’s just not good enough. Iwobi is just poor and that’s all their is to it. How he got on before Gordon is baffling, he contributed nothing.


3.) 17 Oct 2021 18:23:11
Sir-Loin because he was free, we don't have the budget (ffp) unless we want to risk a fine. We need the numbers. See the boo boys are out ( as I knew they would be) . For what it is worth thought we played well, wasn't a foul on Pickford, corner came off Pickfords hand. We will be okay in the long run and Rafa is the man to stabilise and take us forward.


4.) 17 Oct 2021 18:54:07
Tosun is better than Rondon. Their I said it, can’t believe I did but that just shows how bad Rondon is.


5.) 17 Oct 2021 19:53:34
DFS - boo boys? Surely you mean fans without blue tinted glasses?
“We need the numbers” is a ridiculous statement to make, just because he’s free we didn’t need to sign him. Plenty of youngsters at Everton that could make the numbers up.

The lad doesn’t even look fit, I’m sure when he’s up to full fitness we’ll see a different player and one that will contribute.

However to persevere with him when he’s playing so poorly baffles me.

Not sure why managers have their favourite players that they are willing to play whatever the cost - Rafa by no means the exception - loads of managers seem to persevere with players that aren’t doing it.


6.) 17 Oct 2021 20:20:46
boo boys where just fans having an opinion alex iwobi is not good enough how many matches does he need to justify that 35 mil pound price tag he's up there as the worst buy in evertons transfer history can't pass certainly can't shoot to scared take on the full back all he can do is run we be lucky to make 5 mil if we sell him as for rondon he should of been taken of in 60th min for dobbs or simms in my opinion.

{Ed025's Note - i would say 6th rather than 60th andy, obviously not fit and a total waste of a place in that condition mate..


7.) 17 Oct 2021 20:49:52
Imagine we have rondon two year deal too. What a joke of a club. I would play Michael Keane upfront before rondon he's that bad. At least Keane would get his head on summot.


 

 

16 Oct 2021 14:18:06
Watford bloody awful! . That young Right back Ngakia looks a decent player though. One to keep an eye on.


1.) 16 Oct 2021 15:54:43
Welcome back to the Premiership Claudio.


2.) 17 Oct 2021 12:47:32
Definitely and as the saying goes a new manager gives the team a lift clearly watching that match yesterday Liverpool should of won 10.0.


 

 

15 Oct 2021 15:00:30
Any1 got any info on when Tyler Onyango is back? . Had a look online but can't find any recent updates.


 

 

10 Oct 2021 12:27:49
Hiya Ed002. Obviously everyone is talking about Newcastle at the moment and how they're going to buy everyone under the sun. Read that they can only spend 200mill over the next three years without breaching FFP/ prem rules. Obviously outgoings would change that figure

Does that sound about right or is there more to it?

{Ed002's Note - No. Newcastle can spend their rolling profit plus up to the full FFP losses limit this season. Anything beyond that needs to be offset against additional income from match day, commersial (e.g. sponsorship) or broadcasting. They can request to be allowed to add to that as new owners - but that seems unlikely. The three years is a rolling window so next year and the year after will be determined by the inclome the generate including player sales.}

With Newcastle not really spending anything for the last 10yrs they’re in a super healthy position. They will definitely be able to spend huge for the next 2 years but they’ve got to get it right, or they will be stuffed like us.

He’s 32 bunnyman. We’ve seen what happened to baines/ Coleman once they hit that age. Again just my opinion but it’s another bizarre move imo.

Think it would depend on if it’s rail seating or not mate. Pretty sure rail seating offers 1 and a half times more space than a traditional seat.

Yeah I checked after I made the post mate. Think it was Townsend who signed a 2yr.
